If an Ophthalmologist Says That a Person Is a Glaucoma Suspect, What Does That Mean?
A glaucoma suspect is a person who might have or may develop glaucoma. The ophthalmologist may be concerned about the elevated pressure inside the eyes or the appearance of the optic nerves. Some people may have pressures that are higher than normal, but they do not develop glaucoma. Other people have optic nerves that might appear to be damaged but, in fact, are actually normal for them, just as people can be taller or shorter than average.
